to patronize or brush off someone is to say something insincere just to get him/her off your back.
ago refers to a time in the past from now, whereas before is from a point in time that needs to be specified.
I am 30 years old, I was 25 five years ago, and 22 three years before.
If this is a standalone sentence and not a part of a dialogue, then it is incorrect.

敷衍 palter 不過如果只是禮貌性應酬話 會說
It's a compliment! 只是具應酬話
關於文法 : 那句話應該是before 因為before 直接就是以前 而ago在....以前
5 minutes ago
one year ago
